4 out of 5 stars Very fun climb, lots of everything!

Thin slab on the bottom, easy corner climbing above to a very fun roof with huge jugs. Big stretch for this shorty. Fun fun fun.

4 out of 5 stars Fun climb with some runout

This climb was not very difficult if you are comfortable climbing in the 5.8 range. Would not recommend for new leaders because of the sparse gear in a short section right off the ground.

what diversity! The thin not so well protected slab can be scary and the big roof looks intimidating, but the good holds are there.
